    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I took a knee right about my left testicle today. There is a lot of swelling right above the left testicle. The swollen spot and testicle is very sore to touch.

    Ice it off, but you should deff see a doctor because trauma to the testicle can cause severe problems if not checked.

    NEVER ice your genitals! Go to the hospital immediately, you have trauma and it needs to be addressed. Sie7e is correct that you must see a doctor because trauma needs to be treated immediately to prevent permanent damage.
